LA to host 2028 Olympics

Olympics LA to benefit from more time to prepare for Games

The report also said opportunities presented by holding the Games in Los Angeles outweighed any potential risk of awarding them 11 years in advance instead of seven years.

They added that this would help identify "additional cost savings and operational efficiencies".

The compelling features of Los Angeles' bid, including the use of UCLA for the Olympic Village and all other existing venues and planned or temporary facilities remain in the plan.

Los Angeles previously hosted the Olympics in 1932 and then in 1984.

Los Angeles will also receive up to $2 billion from the International Olympic Committee, which is up to $300 million more than it would have gotten for 2024. The IOC President and his colleagues will once again see for themselves why Los Angeles makes such an extraordinary Host City: elite sport and passionate fans, right alongside the glamour of the entertainment industry, all of it enjoyed by a global audience.

Los Angeles 2028 will receive concessions from the International Olympic Committee for hosting the later event.

Last week, Brazilian Olympic chief Carlos Nuzman was arrested by investigators probing an elaborate scheme to buy votes during the 2009 IOC meeting in Copenhagen which awarded the 2016 Olympics to Rio de Janeiro.

The IOC are expected to begin their payments to Los Angeles 2028 on January 1.

"Our goal has always been to create a Games concept that fits the long-term needs of LA and its people, not change our city to fit the Games", said LA 2028 Chairman Casey Wasserman. Under the Olympic Charter, a new Evaluation Commission needed to be formed to complete the 2028 allocation, including the report and approvals.

The IOC board seat representing the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) will be elected at a four-day annual meeting starting Wednesday in Lima.

It also references an investment of up to $160 million to increase youth sports programs in LA in the years leading up to the Games.
